Going back to the notion of "Amateurs would have seen it" well this is 100% true, since this time of year (in USA/UK/Europe) the sun is usually in
full view and a lot of people have Solar Telescopes, which are used to view/image the sun.....
My question is this, for those out there that use PST's, how come none have ever reported anything being next to or near-by the sun? I frequent a few
Astronomy forums which have areas dedicated to solar imaging/viewing and i dont think i have EVER read a strange post labelled "Weird object next to
sun" ever.....and please dont try the "They're in on it" rant either since a few are close friends...
If there was something next to the Sun, i can guarantee there would be CLEAR CLEAN images all over the net, from all around the world. You can get a
PST for under $500 (£400 ish) so for all those that want definitive clean images, why not get yourself a safe solar filter for your camera/telescope
and take a look for yourself, its its a VERY well known conception that imaging/viewing anything through glass will cause
reflection/-fraction/flares/turbulance etc, this is very common knowledge and has been taught throughout schools from a young age, i always thought
this was basic physics/science.....seems not anymore!
